    I work at a local gun shop and a customer comes in with a springfield champion with night sights to put on consignment. I look at the gun and I tell him I will take it for 600 that way he gets his money right away and doesn't have to worry about anything. He agrees with the price and we do a private transfer instead. Now I am waiting my 10 days.

    Almost all bluing(slight holster wear), great barrel, no rust, overall very good condition.

    I've wondered about stuff like this... Does the gunshop owner get upset about transactions like this? Just playing devil's advocate, but if the shop sells it, then they get a fee for the consignment sale. By you intercepting it and buying it in their place of business, you are taking money out of the shop owner's pocket.
